Denison is a residential college. A substantive residential experience enhances academic achievement, personal growth, and the development of a strong campus community, all of which are hallmarks of a Denison education.
Denison is committed to its residential identity and to the many benefits that stem from the relationships, activities, and programs available to students in the residence halls. An integral component of each student's Denison experience for four years, residential living provides important opportunities for students to learn about others as well as themselves, develop interpersonal skills, and take responsibility for their immediate community. This is an ideal complement to the learning that occurs in our classrooms, laboratories, and studios.
